Facing Reality - Political Impact

Political Impact

Facing Reality had a particular, if small, impact among African American political activists at Wayne State University in Detroit and in auto plants in the city. A community paper, Inner City Voice, published articles by James in the late 1960s. Glaberman taught a class on Karl Marx's Capital to many of the staff of the Inner City Voice. Numerous members of this group were also active in the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement. In 1970, the group was dissolved at the suggestion of Glaberman over James' objections on the ground that it was too small to have an impact.

It is important to note, however that the group had a broader international influence as well, including in Italy's burgeoning "autonomous" communist movement.

Famous quotes containing the words impact and/or political:

    Television does not dominate or insist, as movies do. It is not sensational, but taken for granted. Insistence would destroy it, for its message is so dire that it relies on being the background drone that counters silence. For most of us, it is something turned on and off as we would the light. It is a service, not a luxury or a thing of choice.
    David Thomson, U.S. film historian. America in the Dark: The Impact of Hollywood Films on American Culture, ch. 8, William Morrow (1977)

    He knows nothing and thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
